In this article we will see how we can get cursor of the bar graph in the PyQtGraph module. PyQtGraph is a graphics and user interface library for Python that provides functionality commonly required in designing and science applications. Its primary goals are to provide fast, interactive graphics for displaying data (plots, video, etc.) and second is to provide tools to aid in rapid application development (for example, property trees such as used in Qt Designer).A bar chart or bar graph is a chart or graph that presents categorical data with rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values that they represent. The bars can be plotted vertically or horizontally. A vertical bar chart is sometimes called a column chart. In computer user interfaces, a cursor is an indicator used to show the current position for user interaction on a computer monitor or other display device that will respond to input from a text input or pointing device. The mouse cursor is also called a pointer, owing to its resemblance in usage to a pointing stick. It can be set with the help of
We can create a plot window and bar graph with the help of commands given below
# creating a pyqtgraph plot window window = pg.plot() # creating a bar graph of green color bargraph = pg.BarGraphItem(x=x, height=y1, width=0.6, brush='g')
In order to do this we use
cursormethod with the bar graph object
Syntax : bargraph.cursor()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns QCursor object
Below is the implementation
Cursor : PyQt5.QtGui.QCursor object at 0x0000025679692970
